It pays for Middlebury College students to stay in Vermont. For graduating seniors who are considering staying in Vermont, you may be eligible for $5,000 in student loan debt relief. And the qualifications are pretty simple:
- You need to get a full-time job with a Vermont employer;
- You need to live in Vermont; and
- To get the full $5,000, you need to stay for two years.
It’s a great deal- you get to start your career here in Vermont, and a lucky Vermont employer gets a great
employee! And you don’t have to be from Vermont to take advantage- anyone graduating from a
Vermont college is eligible.
The process to apply is easy. You can access the application here Green Mountain Job & Retention
Application. In addition to applying, you’ll need to confirm you’ve graduated from a Vermont college
and that you live in Vermont and plan to stay. You’ll also need a letter from the human resources
department of your new company confirming your employment. That’s it!
You’ll get $2,500 toward loan repayment at the end of year one, and $2,500 at the end of the second
Please note that this program is available on a first come, first served basis, so please apply at Green
Mountain Job & Retention Application as soon as you are hired to be eligible! You can also learn more
